Busoni Piano Concerto,
This review is from: Busoni: Piano Concerto (Audio CD)
Busoni's Piano Concerto is a huge work, more of a choral symphony with piano rather than a Concerto per se. There hasn't been a finer recording of this flawed but fascinating work than this one. Ohlsson is an ideal pianist for this - an unfailingly 'serious' player with a rich, deep, Arrau-like sound. He uses a Bosendorfer piano, and its rich tone really makes a difference. The Cleveland Orchestra under Dohnanyi are on top form. At this price, this CD is a bargain, and better than any alternatives I can think of.
